Barron Falls is a highlight on the scenic Kuranda rail ride. The narrator will give you advance notice it’s coming up, so get to that side of the train quickly if you want a photo. You won’t have much time.

I saw the falls from a lookout on the way up to Kuranda. I enjoyed seeing them from the various vantage points and got some good photos too. There was some water running but not nearly as robust as I saw in some of the...More

The falls aren't as impressive in the dry season, but still worth a visit. The elevated trail to the falls goes through the rainforest, and is pretty interesting. The view of the gorge is still spectacular, even with less water.

The view from the Sky Rail platforms was better than the view from the train platform. Having seen many majestic waterfalls around the world, this one was quite disappointing; this might have been caused due to a low water low in October.
Barron Falls are an iconic and sacred landmark. No trip to Kuranda is complete without a visit to these spectacular falls! At their best in the wet season and easily accessed by public transport and cars. Easy accessible walking tracks to the best vantage points!
